Free leisure activities with Spanish courses in Bilbao

Enjoy while you are here!

Join us in our free social and cultural activities that we plan every weekday and some weekends.

You can make friends and get on better with the other students of the Instituto while you practice your Spanish.

These are some of the free activities that we plan every week of the year:

  • Tour of tapas and pintxos: every friday we meet at the school to enjoy the tapas/pintxos of Bilbao in some of the bars close to the school.
  • Guggenheim museum: We go to visit the seasonal or permanent expositions.
  • Wine tasting: fun activity to learn how to taste wine.
  • Excursion to Guernica.
  • Excursion to San Juan de Gaztelugatxe: one of the most picturesque places of the Basque coast where we regularly go.
  • Teatro Arriaga: we got all the shows of flamenco, dancing and opera.

You can see all the activities that we plan on the activities timetable.

Remember that the beaches are 20 minutes away from the school and once there you can practice sufing and sailing
